The first nickel-catalyzed intramolecular hydroacylation/Suzuki cross coupling cascade of o-allylbenzaldehydes with a broad range of phenylboronic acid neopentyl glycol esters has been developed. This strategy shows high regioselectivity and step economy in the construction of two C-C bonds via aldehyde C-H bond activation, affording valuable indanones with high efficiency.
